    Amazing rifle. Put a couple thousand rounds through with minimal malfunctions. The only things I would have to say I disliked was the grip and stock but those are cheap and easy to replace. I would also warn do not use Hoppes spray oil, it gummed up my firing pin causing it to light strike on every single shot until I got the oil burned out of it. Besides that it’s been a great rifle and I will be purchasing from GLFA again.

    223 Wylde 16"

    Posted by Tim on Jun 4th 2023

    I purchased one from sporting goods store in Morley MI. This rifle is absolutely amazing! It consistently put down sub moa groups at 100 yards . These rifles will shoot groups that are equal and most times better than rifle that cost hundreds more and I do it with $149 LPVO . I have had 100 percent reliability and it shots all ammo great. If you are in the market for an AR get one with a stainless barrel you will be blown away at how great you shoot with this rifle .

    Posted by Dave on Apr 6th 2023

    Picked up this GLFA AR at a local shop, slapped on some Magpul MBUS sights and sent 100 rnds down range. Plinking metal plates at 100yds with no problem. Love this rifle.

    .223 Rifle- 1 year after purchase

    Posted by Donny V on Dec 11th 2022

    This rifle is quite simply the best value in firearms I personally have ever experienced in my lifetime. Myself as well as my father and 2 uncles all have at least 1 model as well as a more expensive model- in all cases, the GLFA rifles outperform the more expensive brands- including both Stag Arms and Smith and Wesson. The fact that they have not raised the price in the last year speaks to the company’s character and desire to make good quality guns for people in the USA. God Bless America. Buy one of these bad boys to hold while you say it, and it sounds even cooler.

    100% reliable, Amazing Value for Price

    Posted by Alex R on Nov 15th 2022

    Picked up my GLFA 223 Wylde back in June at a local dealer here in Mid Michigan. I have roughly 500 rounds through the rifle split evenly between 556 and 223 with zero malfunctions. The rifle has fed every type of ammo I’ve thrown at it, and I have used 4 different brands of mags, all functioning flawlessly. I haven’t personally shot farther out than 150 yds, but this rifle will absolutely drive nails if it’s required of it. Will 1000% be purchasing another rifle from GLFA

    Bought my gl-15 from my local dealer a few months ago and have since out about 600 rounds through it. Amazing rifle for the price and very accurate. Only issue I had was the castle but wasn’t stacked and started coming loose that’s the only reason I have it 4 stars. Been a great rifle so far and looks awesome too.

    GLFA .223 Wylde Rifle

    Posted by Matthew Brooks on Oct 4th 2022

    Bought one of these when GLFA was a new company. Have put many thousands of rounds down range. This rifle is an absolute tack driver, I consistently shoot sub moa @ 100 yards with a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6. Very reliable quality firearm right out of the box. So glad GLFA is doing well as a company and look forward to buying a new GLFA rifle in a different caliber and color. " I will run my GLFA next to your DD or LWRC all day long. I have all 3 and the one I bought for under $800.00 wins the day every time". Keep up the great work fellas!
